Description
Patrick Henry Hughes was born with a rare genetic disorder that left him without eyes and physically disabled. But he was also blessed with exceptional musical talent--able to play the piano as a toddler and now, at age 19, a nationally known pianist, singer, and trumpeter who has performed at the Grand Ole Opry and the Kennedy Center. Currently he's a member of his college marching band, playing while his devoted father pushes him in his wheelchair. With determined optimism and courage, Hughes has made "I am potential" his mantra and defied the impossible at every turn.

Now, for the first time, Hughes and his father share the full account of his extraordinary journey. In I Am Potential , Hughes recounts the eight critical lessons he has learned that are at the heart of his success, including "When Life Gives You Lemons, Accept Them and Be Grateful" and "Do All You Can to Change What You Can." Uplifting and revealing, I Am Potential is remarkably inspirational for anyone facing challenges in their own life.
